Barn wedding – An epic Upwaltham Barns Wedding

Love was the name of the game at Upwaltham Barns near Chichester when Beth and Kit decided to take the plunge into married life. As someone who lives for capturing those raw, genuine moments, being their wedding photographer was an absolute blast – especially since I got married at Upwaltham Barns too!!

The epic Upwaltham Barns

Nestled amidst the stunning landscapes of the South Downs, Upwaltham Barns stands as a beacon of enchantment in the world of weddings. Not only is it a breathtaking setting for couples to tie the knot, but it’s also blessed with the most amazing team who pour their hearts and souls into making every wedding day truly magical.

Capturing those authentic moments of joy was like catching lightning in a bottle.

The I does!

The ceremony itself, set against the rustic backdrop of the South Barn, was nothing short of magical. Beth and Kit had everyone up on their feet singing before sealing the deal with a heartfelt kiss. And let’s not forget the confetti moment – a cricket bat arch, a nod to Kit’s love for the game. It was quirky, personal, and utterly brilliant.

As the day rolled into a balmy September afternoon, the courtyard at Upwaltham Barns transformed into a hub of laughter and chatter during the drinks reception.

“Danni is just amazing. Absolutely everything you want in a wedding photographer. She was incredibly patient with my endless questions in the run-up to the wedding, and on the day she made me, my bridal party, our parents and our guests feel very relaxed. She also took over the steaming of my wedding dress and veil, which was greatly appreciated and one other thing I didn’t need to worry about.

She did a perfect blend of staged shots and candid shots. One particular skill was being incredibly efficient and speedy with the photos while being friendly and funny and never making it feel rushed. The biggest miracle was capturing my mother with her eyes open and mouth closed – a feat rarely accomplished!

My husband and I are so grateful to Danni for capturing our day so perfectly, thank you so much!”
